A long-term partnership approach offers product developers in all industries the ability to focus on their core products while being assured that security is maintained over time. Key to success is a focus on establishing the right balance between security measures, risk and cost; a strategy that can accelerate time-to-market, as well as protect and provide competitive advantage.The IoT landscape is expanding rapidly with analysts such as Gartner, Inc. anticipating 25 billion connected devices by 2020 (Gartner Forecast: IoT Security, Worldwide, April 2016) .
Yet, while driving innovation and growth, serious concerns have arisen over the security of the devices, IoT ecosystems and privacy and integrity of data transmitted. Recently, a massive denial of service attack choked Internet access to popular websites, carried out in part by common IoT devices hijacked by the Mirai botnet.Today, there’s a real need for proven security tactics and technology for the IoT space. The Kudelski Group is able to leverage a long history in digital content protection, and experience securing more than 400 million Pay TV devices globally, to guide customers to success in the nascent Internet connected devices marketplace.More information about Kudelski Group’s IoT Security Center of Excellence may be found by visiting: https://www.kudelskisecurity.com/sites/default/files/files/kudelski_IoT_brochure.pdf
